Here's what to do if SARS rejects your application for a tax debt compromise

by , 17 September 2014
Your company is in financial distress. As a result, you apply for a tax debt compromise so SARS can 'park' your outstanding tax debt and treat the debt as no longer due and payable.

After sending in your application and holding endless meetings with SARS, it rejects your application. What happens now?

Read on to find out what to do if SARS rejects your application for a tax debt compromise.


Before we get to what you must do, take a look at what happens if SARS denies your tax debt compromise application
 

If SARS denies your tax compromise application, unfortunately, the matter will revert to where it was before the tax compromise process began. This means:
 
  • Your tax debt is still due in full;
 
  • SARS might immediately seek other action against you. For example, you may have to go through a SARS audit;
 
  • You'll get incessant phone calls from SARS' collections department; and

 

  • SARS could take money directly out of your bank account.

 
Now let's take a look at what you must do about this unfortunate situation.

Turn Your Home Office Into a Tax-Saver

Working from home: The best tax-deductible opportunities

The tax-deduction opportunities for offices at home have been severely restricted. But for smart people, there is still some elbowroom. You can deduct the costs of all office supplies, from pencils to wastebaskets and office furniture.

If you've set up a business and operate from home, the portion you use for business purposes is tax deductible. It's also possible to rent a room from parents or siblings. This way the money stays in the family and the expenses are approved 100%.

Do you know these 7 deductible expenses?

Do this if SARS rejects your application for a tax debt compromise

 
If SARS rejects your application for a tax debt compromise, apply again.

There's no limit to the number of compromises you can apply for.

Experts behind the Practical Tax Loose Leaf Service say, no matter how many times SARS turns you down, don't give up on the tax compromise if you believe and can prove that the compromise will make the best of a bad situation that both you and SARS find yourselves in.

Here's the bottom line: Don't sit back if SARS rejects your application for a tax debt compromise. Do what's in your power to get SARS to accept your application so you can effectively deal with the tax debt you're battling with.
